Python Fundamentals Workshop Series

Python Fundamentals Workshop Series | Manchester

About this workshop series

Python has quickly grown into one of the most popular, easy-to-read, flexible, and beginner-friendly object-oriented programming languages. Start writing basic syntax with Python scripts that store and manipulate data in the form of variables, for a more powerful, customisable Python programming experience. Use dictionaries and lists to format and organise information; use conditionals and loops to allow your programs to make intelligent, logic-driven decisions; use functions to organise code according to the problems they solve and start taking on code challenges to build your programming skills.

This Two Part Python Fundamentals Workshop is the interactive and hands-on way to get started on exploring and visualising your data. You will dive head first into Python, skill up with exercises, and by the end of the day you'll have a handle on data analysis, automating business tasks, and web development.

Takeaways

  • Use the Jupyter Notebook application to create and run Python programs.
  • Understand fundamental Python programming language syntax.
  • Distinguish between a data type and structure in Python.
